staying away from Facebook

I’m staying away from Facebook these days.

I still post my blog to Facebook and I check in for notifications, but that’s really it. Every time I start to scroll in my news feed I get nauseous and regret it.

No matter what I do, I can’t avoid posts about that guy with the orange hair. Posts about Congress are often inaccurate, incomplete, out-of-date, or just plain wrong.  And people I like and respect are reposting this stuff. I’ve thought about doing a thorough scrubbing of my news feed, but it just doesn’t seem like it is worth the effort, or would even be successful.

I need to try to stay sane, as best as possible.  Right now that means staying away from Facebook.

I would, however, be happy to have you join me on Instagram, where I keep it non-political and follow people who keep their photos non-political.
